Subject: 1st Truckin'
Four of us drove all night from southern California to Morrison to see our 1st Red Rocks shows and hopes of seeing a lost China Cat. Well, 1st night we got "The Cat" but the last two shows were moved to the arena. During Wharf Rat, my anticipation ran high as I was also waiting for my 1st Truckin'. As I moved to the front of the stage, holding on to my Alcatraz style P-coat, the first notes of Truckin' rang through. Though not Red Rocks, it was quite a 3 night run of many!!

Miracle > Bertha > Good Lovin', occurs 27 times, all between 12/78 and 3/81, and all in the second set. Most times it either opened or closed the set. It works pretty well and I wonder why it was so shortlived. Perhaps, as Bobby often says, they forgot how to play it. Of course all three songs stay in the mix for the duration.

Is that a Nobody's Fault jam in the middle of Truckin'? Nice little flashback that is.

...is pretty amazing. Jerry is on a different planet.

Though Sailor is without Saint, there is a hybrid Saint jam in the intro of The Other One from 2:05 to 2:42 as Jerry plays around with it prior to its debut.

Subject: Quite the upgrade!
Wow. Had this board for years with the AUD patches but this transfer brings this summer 79' show stomper to life.

What a show! What a transfer!

Thanks CM!

Crisp, clear--everything you'd want from a Dead sbd.

Deadhead: is there a way to um not stream these? jeffreybernstein5@gmail.com

Subject: A great show
How Great? Well, after collecting Dead tapes for 30+ years when I first started converting to digital not long ago this was the first show I got b/c I had never been able to find a truly decent copy of it. I had had the He's Gone> Other One as decent filler for decades but never the whole show. This version of that combo alone is enough to make it worth having this one in your collection.

Now here we have a SIGNIFICANT upgrade to the other available SBD source, giving hope for many other shows to creep out of the woodwork in the same condition.

Thanks Charlie. Hope to buy you a round or two one day. You have improved my quality of life immensely. I envy you your labor of love and the ability to carry it out.
